Matthew 5:13

Says that "You are the salt of the earth;but if the salt looses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out & trampled underfoot by men." I have been so caught up in scripture lately and am just on fire creating pieces influenced by 'faith'. Of late I have been purchasing every salt shaker that I could find so I could create something faithful. I have had them sitting in my view for months. They have been speaking to me. I have crystal ones & sterling ones. I have big ones & small ones. I have useful ones & just darn right pretty ones. Here is what I did.
I soldered the scripture Matthew 5:13 in really pretty beveled glass. Then I soldered some other pretty little do dadds. I soldered some vintage mirror. I soldered some pieces of vintage sewing tape...you know the measuring kind that is all brown & pretty with age. I also soldered some vintage book paper with a few stamps of random things. I added pearls to the crystal shaker and bells to the sterling shaker...then I strung them up with pearls & the soldered pieces. It is yummy & just scrumptuous. It is such a neat reminder that the Bible is the living...breathing word of our Lord & Savior... Christ Jesus. The salt shaker is a simple reminder that we are the salt of the earth. I don't want to loose my flavor & be good for nothing but to be trampled underfoot. Are there creative ways that you like to share your faith? I hope this post leaves you inspired to share your faith with others through your creative ways. May your weekend be blessed with happiness & creative flair.
